I've just got the rabbit shooting rights over some land on the edge of the village where I live. There are houses, livestock and footpaths nearby. I've previously had a .22rf, but wouldn't want to risk richochets. A .17hmr might be safer, but also noisier (even with a moderator). I'd like a bit more power than a non-FAC air rifle can offer, and a FAC air rifles seem expensive in comparison to rim fires. I suspect I'll have to compromise, but would appreciate any suggestions.
